In February PTM was getting no coverage from any TV channel during his sitting in the capital. But this time some of the TV channels dared to do so but the attention of media is still rare. Now Pashteen is targeting social media to gain the attention of the people. Initially, settlements were expressed and anti-PTM campaigns were over many social media platforms but gradually pro- PTM supporter also started to spread their messages over social media.
The protesters were holding the play cards written:”All the unknowns are known to all”.
Yesterday more than a hundred people including supporters of Pashtun tahafuz movement human activists and social society members held a protest against the order of arrests and cases against the PTM supporters and workers. The rally was held on PTM leader Manzoor Ahmad Pashteen call outside Lahore press club. The protesters were holding the play cards written:”All the unknowns are known to all”.

In Chaman they(establishment) arrested Sadiq. They have terminated Anwar from his job
Yesterday on social media Pashteen shared a real-time video of himself defining that cause of Pashtuns are quite simple. According to him “Pashtuns are exhausted from the battle being fought in their land. Now they want peace in their land. For this reason, we are having protests and rallies but the people who have participated in these protests are being harassed. In Chaman they(establishment) arrested Sadiq. They terminated Anwar from his job. In Wana, they send out the message to protesters for table talk but when Sardar Arif came for table talk they arrested him. This was very unprofessional. He is still in prison and we demand his release. He also said the “this is one of our agenda of 31st March protest”.
According to Pashteen: “the word is very clear that whoever is participating in our cause and joining us we will not ever compromise on his/her security and freedom. We will all stand beside them. If demanding a good peaceful life with freedom is a crime then we all are criminals. I will stand with my brothers till my last breath. I will do what I can for a peaceful life for myself and all the Pashtuns”.
